Dr. Paul B Johnson has the following 2 specialties
- Pain Medicine
Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

I have been with Dr. Johnson for nearing 8 years. I have a complicated medical history that most doctors don't know anything about. Dr. Johnson as been my advocate and supporter for all the time I have worked with him. I cannot express my gratitude enough for him and his entire office staff.

Dr. Johnson is a very professional, friendly, caring individual. I have had a number of treatments from him and am always confident in his diagnosis. He always provides that personal care that is so important. On top of that, his staff is always friendly and professional. I would recommend him to anyone needing treatment for pain. Five stars all the way around.

I have been a patient of Dr. Johnson's for 7 years and as I am getting ready to move away, I wanted to leave kind words in my wake (although I am sure he has nothing but from his patients). I have a chronic pain condition brought on by, primarily, degenerative disc disease in my lower back. As a 53 year old woman the last 7 years of my life have been quite a journey! I went from being the picture of health to being completely disabled with all the mental and emotional breakdowns and life changes you can imagine to accompany being in chronic pain. Dr. Johnson has spent countless hours with me, he has always been supportive and up-lifting. He tried every thing to help me...from cortisone shots, nerve cauterizations, and referrals of all types. There is plenty wrong with my spine, as my MRIs will attest to, and there are plenty of things that should have, by all accounts, helped me but sadly, never did, at least not for long. I'm just one of those hard/mystifying cases but never once did Dr. Johnson breathe a word of doubt and always, always offered hope and encouragement. I know beyond doubt that he has done everything possible to help me...I have lost count as to how many referrals and tests I have had over the years. His office staff is a dream come true and not a one of them ever leaves (very telling that). His office manager is as on-top of things as you could possibly imagine and if not immediately than right there after has answers to any questions I have had. His nurses are always professional on the phone, appointments are easy, refills of needed medication are easy, and his nurses who help in the surgical ward (for the shots, etc.) are kind and gentle. There is nothing negative I can say! I have 4 friends who do or who have seen him and all but one sing the highest of praises for him. And the who does not, I believe it is purely a personality issue. He has been my angel and I cannot imagine life without him. I know they have good Doctors in other places but chronic pain has a way of taking the who of you and turning that inside out...I can only pray that my next pain management Dr. will be half the Doctor that Dr. Johnson is and has been to me. Grateful for ever and always!
where would i be today

there is nothing negative to say..If it was not for Dr. Johnson and his staff i could have ended up in a wheel chair the rest of my life..The moment he met me and saw the pain i was in, an MRI was ordered where as via another medical group was going to send me for a x-ray and gave me an anti inflammatory drug..Dr. Johnson read the MRI's and set me on a temporary pain medicine and got me an appointment to Dr Moza.(Neurosurgeon)..I also trust Dr. Johnson with my life and that is not easy for me to do...there staff is the best and i love them all
